Good to use

Currently I use this theme for my website. However, I got problem with the customization so I changed to basic one and upgrade to other version.

I use this theme for my blog, and it looks much better than Twenty Thirteen.

Not Responsive - blue links show behind each page!

Although I find Twenty Twelve easy to use I don't find it very responsive. Every time I click on a new page in my navigation bar blue links very briefly show behind each page which is not good. My site is at http://www.fatlossfactorreviews.co.uk and you can see what I mean when you click on each page link in the nav bar.

Twenty twelve v1.2
I have a self hosted WP blog with my own custom theme. I wanted a responsive theme and thought I'd take a shortcut.
The good: easy to install, easy to change colors and you can upload a custom header photo. I looked at on my iphone and it translated very nicely in safari.

the bad: I spent an hour and finally gave up on trying to resolve Google Structured Data Testing Tool Error: Missing required field "updated". (The issue appears in twenty eleven, twenty twelve and thirteen, though this review is on twelve.) The latest versions of the plugin have incorporated the fix often cited (example- http://www.kaibader.de/wordpress-twenty-twelve-and-rich-snippets-testing-tool/). My function.php file already looks the fix, but I still can't get the problem to go away.

Additionally, running a w3c check there are over 30 errors per page.

Some of them are likely related to other plugin, set up, or old manual html conflicts, so I can't give the theme less than 4 stars. Here are some of the issues:
Line 68, Column 10: Element hgroup not allowed as child of element header in this context. (Suppressing further errors from this subtree.)
Content model for element header:
Flow content, but with no header, footer, or main element descendants.

Error Line 68, Column 10: The hgroup element is obsolete. To mark up subheadings, consider either just putting the subheading into a p element ...

conclusion: starting from scratch? great choice
upgrading? might want to hire someone to upgrade from any older design

Keep it simple !
Wonderful : clean and mean! So far, no frustrating experience, a pleasure to work with. The problem of the box-shadow around images in pages and posts was easily solved by reading the community discussion about it.
Great Theme!

Good old twentytwelve

Clean and simple, twenty tweleve is minimalistic yet responsive

Solid theme
By , for WP 3.5.2

I was using a custom theme for my blog at first. However, after noticing a few problems with a couple of the plugins, I switched to the 2012 theme. The plugins now work great and the theme looks pretty good as well. I still need to customize the theme a bit more, but overall this theme looks pretty good right out of the box, especially if you already have a logo to use.

I love the simplicity of this theme
